Welcome to my Spark page.

This past year has been a year of learning, changing, and revelations. I have seen so many things in me that need to change and in my life. I have seen that I need to stop letting my circumstances control me and take my life back, to live a moment by moment pro active life not reactive. I have already made great strides this past year and by the end of 2017 I plan on completing this goal. Sparkpeople, and my weight loss and journey to the best health I can have is part of it all. I know I can do it, and I know you can too!!!

"The Happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.

You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking."

Marcus Aurelius

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.

Believe you can and you’re halfway there!!

I love to read books about health and fitness, and I also enjoy historical fiction, and all kinds of biographies, but especially about the lives of missionaries. I love the outdoors, all of God's creation, the mountains, the ocean, and doing anything outdoors.

The Lord and his Word the Bible, are my daily strength and guide. Without Him I can do nothing. He has blessed my life incredibly!!

    Hello beautiful Margaret! emoticon I'm so happy to hear that you are feeling better. It's good to hear you are on the upswing. What type of work do you do? I didn't even know you worked outside of the house. Bring me up to speed my dear friend. emoticon

    Thanks, Margaret, for the comments on my blogs. Yes, this is a new chapter in our lives, but it won't diminish the love we had for our late spouses. And yes, that flooded house did make us stronger - we ended up living out of our bedroom for 3 months while the house was repaired! All is back to normal now, and we are definitely ready to move on with our lives. Thanks again for checking on us!
